Jiangxi Soviet, also called Kiangsi Soviet or Chinese Soviet Republic, (1931–34), independent government established by the communist leader Mao Zedong and his comrade Zhu De in Jiangxi province in southeastern China. It was from this small state within a state that Mao gained the experience in guerrilla warfare and peasant organization that he later used to accomplish the communist conquest of China in the late 1940s. In June 1930 they received a temporary setback when they attempted to use their small forces to capture urban centres. They were forced to retreat into the countryside, but they continued their efforts to organize the peasants by developing a land redistribution policy that appealed to the people. In this way they were able to rebuild their base. This soviet, of which Mao was elected chairman, expanded so rapidly that it soon had an area containing several million people under its control. Its success, however, alarmed the Nationalists, and between 1930 and 1933 Chiang Kai-shek launched four massive military campaigns to encircle and annihilate the Jiangxi Soviet, all of which were repulsed by the communists by means of guerrilla warfare.
